Pakistan is also attacking India, this time for the Karachi bombing
ISLAMABAD, (BM) – The prime minister of Pakistan, Imran Khan said that the responsibility for organizing the attack on the stock exchange building in Pakistan’s Karachi is to India, the Doon newspaper reported June 30, learned BulgarianMilitary.com.
“We have no doubt that this [attack on the stock exchange – ed.] was committed by India,” Khan emphasized. The prime minister also noted that the terrorist attack in 2008 on civilians in Indian Mumbai was carried out with the aim of “sowing uncertainty” among the Pakistani authorities.
The head of government called the deaths of security guards and a police officer during an attack on the stock exchange a “sacrifice” made for the country. The dead “prevented a serious incident that was planned by India”, as the attackers had a large arsenal of ammunition. Perhaps the militants intended to take hostages, Khan explained.
At the same time, the Prime Minister assured that the Pakistan special services had prevented four more attempts of similar attacks before this incident, two of which the terrorists planned to carry out in the capital Islamabad.
Recall, yesterday, June 29, there was an armed attack on the Pakistan Stock Exchange in one of the largest cities in the world, Karachi. It is known that terrorists arrived at the exchange building by car.
After leaving the car, the militants threw a grenade towards the main entrance, after which they started firing from AK-47 assault rifles. A terrorist attack killed a police officer and four exchange guards. The four attackers were eliminated by law enforcement.
Indo-Pakistani conflict for Kashmir
Since 1858, the territory of modern India, Pakistan, Bangladesh and Myanmar was considered the colonial possession of Great Britain. In 1947, British India gained independence and was divided into two independent states: India and Pakistan. The main point of conflict between the two countries was the Kashmir region. It has become the disputed territory claimed by India, Pakistan and China.
After the first Indo-Pakistani war (1947-1949), Kashmir was divided into two controlled units. The ceasefire line (now called the “control line”) in Kashmir actually, but not legally, became the border between India and Pakistan.
The situation is aggravated by the fact that Kashmir has traditionally been a Muslim territory, and now the vast majority of the population are Muslims. After the uprising in Indian Jammu and Kashmir in 1980, the activities of terrorist organizations supporting the independence of the region increased dramatically.
Pakistan is interested in gaining control over all of Kashmir, because by doing so, it, among other things, gets a convenient transport route to its ally, China.
